Japan hands over its latest project, Salua Primary School reconstruction project


Students of Manono yesterday celebrated the completion of the Salua Primary School reconstruction project.

The project was primarily funded with a grant of USD 197,313 (approximately SAT 522,000) through Japan’s Grass-Roots Human Security Projects (GGP).

Ambassador Extraordinary and Plenipotentiary of Japan to Samoa, H.E. Mr. SENTA Keisuke handed over the new school building to the School Committee in the presence of the Deputy Speaker and Member of Parliament for Aiga ile Tai constituency, Auapaau Mulipola Aloitafua, Chief Executive Officer of the Ministry of Education, Sports and Culture, Aeau Chris Hazelman and distinguished guests.

The new Salua Primary School stands as a testament to Japan’s dedication to supporting human security and fostering sustainable development around the world.

Through its GGP, the Government of Japan aims to uplift local communities including remote islands and create positive impacts on the lives of people, particularly children at the grass-roots level.

As a long-standing supporter of education, Japan has continuously assisted in the sector. The new project for Salua Primary School is an added milestone in Japan’s ongoing support and cooperation towards Samoa’s social and economic developments.
